The Corbin Lady Redhounds, the Lynn Camp Lady Wildcats and the Whitley County Lady Colonels were in action this weekend, participating in various tournaments across the state.

Corbin (3-3) traveled to Pikeville and participated in the Champions of the Mountains Classic and posted a 2-3 record, while Lynn Camp continued to impress by posting a 3-1 record and placing second in the Berea Lady Pirates Tournament. Whitley County  played in the Boyle County Invitational and turned in a 2-4 mark.

Lady Wildcats impress

Lynn Camp continued its impressive season and is now a 13th Region-best 5-1 on the season after posting a 4-1 mark in the Berea Lady Pirates Tournament.

Lynn Camp had wins over Kentucky School for the Deaf (25-15, 25-13), Madison Southern (23-25, 25-19, 15-13) and Berea (25-12, 25-11). The Lady Wildcats lost in the finals to Mercer County, 25-17, 25-19.

“”We lost to a strong Mercer County team in the championship,” Lynn Camp coach Cody Dixon said. “I was extremely proud of how our girls played today. They showed me what they are capable of doing and how they can play.

“I was excited to see how the girls responded during this all-day tournament,” he added. “They came prepared to play today. We just ran out of steam in the championship game against a strong Mercer County team.”

Lady Redhounds go 2-3

Corbin picked up wins over Rowan County (25-23, 25-21) and Belfry (25-15, 19-25, 14-16), but lost to Pikeville (25-14, 25-19), Paintsville (25-23, 25-18) and Letcher Central (25-13, 19-25, 14-16).
